Franciacorta, outstanding food shops
On a trip to discover the flavors of Franciacorta, you must be sure to taste one of the area’s most characteristic dishes: the meticulously cooked beef in oil.
In Rovato, you can visit the historic Macelleria Guarneri: since 1918, the butchery has been renowned as a place where you can buy high-quality beef prepared according to tradition and this knowledge has been passed down to the family’s third generation today.
A few kilometers away lies Torbiato, a hamlet in the Municipality of Adro, where you can continue to satisfy your gastronomic curiosity comfortably seated at a table in the elegant Dispensa Pani e Vini restaurant. You will not be disappointed by this multi-faceted location: you can choose between the restaurant, the Slow Food Osteria or the wine shop and wine bar, always assured that you are tasting the best of Franciacorta’s food and wine tradition.
In Torbiato, there is another historic store in which the art of butchery has been handed down for four generations: Polastri Macèlèr pork-butchery, where salami production is carried out following the oldest local tradition, strictly based on a selection of top-quality meat.
In Franciacorta, the wines demand your attention. The wineries will prove it with their historical and modern structures and with the stories told by the producers.
